    Talking It'll be a miracle If...

    Hello~

    Would you help me how to say this naturally please?

    Kid : Mom, sorry, I havenít passed the exam.

    Mom: You never read book.
    It'll be a miracle if you passed it.
    (Or, It would be strange if you passed it.)

    --------------------------------------------------------

    A: I got a flue.

    B: Itís winter how come you wear such a small clothes.
    It'll be a miracle if you didnít get flue.
    (Or, It would be strange if you didnít get flue.)

    Kid : Mom, sorry, I havenít passed the exam. (Saying haven't passed implies that you will have another chance to pass it; saying, "Mom, sorry, I didn't pass the exam means you failed the exam.)

    Mom: You never read the book.
    It'll would have been a miracle if you had passed it.
    (Or, It would be strange if you passed it.)The first one is better.

    A: I got the flue.

    B: Itís winter. How come you wear such a small so few clothes?
    or Why do you wear such skimpy clothes? or Why don't you dress more warmly?
    It'll be a miracle if you didnítdon't get the flue.
    (Or, It would be strange if you didnít get flue.) Again, the first one is better.
    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra
